Each charcoal drawing shows the artist, Gil Vicente of Recife, Brazil, holding a weapon moments before assassinating a world leader. The series, called Inimigos (Enemies), is meant to highlight alleged crimes for which the leaders have been directly or indirectly responsible by imagining that they are being made to pay the price.

Outside the art world i’d expect this type of thing to be taken as a real threat. Can you imagine if some kid sketched the exact same thing in a notebook at school?  All hell would break loose.   According to the article, the artist wants $260,000 for all 9 of his sketches… which in the U.S. would probably be close to the bail you would have to pay to get your kid out of jail temporarily for doing the same thing.

Jason Bradbury takes on a real SAS solider on the worlds first full scale version of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 pit level:

Very interesting idea, and pretty nicely executed… even if it is staged.

As SayUncle pointed out, the gun is a GSG-5 (which is a .22LR) not a H&K MP5 (9mm)… huge difference.

No matter what online first person shooter game you play, whether it be HALO, Modern Warfare 2, etc… You are always going to have to deal with campers.

By definition, a camper just sits at one spot in the game map and waits around for another player just so they can kill them.  This happens on ALL online first person shooter games, and can get very irritating.

Some might say it’s good strategy, which may be true… but it takes the fun out of playing.

The one good thing is that once you get killed by a camper once, it lots of times gives away their position so you can go kill them.  If they are a habitual camper though, unfortunately they will most likely just go back to the same spot, or else find another spot to set up camp.

Hilarity ensues in games like Modern Warfare 2, where the users can have on mics and talk to one another.

What are your thoughts on campers?
